Chris O'Shea's interactive installation: Hand from Above

"Hand From Above encourages us to question our normal routine when we often find ourselves rushing from one destination to another. Inspired by Land of the Giants and Goliath, we are reminded of mythical stories by mischievously unleashing a giant hand from the BBC Big Screen. Passers by will be playfully transformed. What if humans weren't on top of the food chain? Unsuspecting pedestrians will be tickled, stretched, flicked or removed entirely in real–time by a giant deity.

Hand from Above is a joint co–commission between FACT: Foundation for Art & Creative Technology and Liverpool City Council for BBC Big Screen Liverpool and the Live Sites Network. It premiered during the inaugural Abandon Normal Devices Festival."

The Iron Hand of Götz Von Berlichingen

... in 1504 "centuries ahead of its time. The [prosthetic] iron hand not only allowed [Götz Von Berlichingen] to return to battle, but later helped lay the foundation for modern prosthetics. Complete with articulated fingers, spring action and an array of levers and buttons, the hand allowed a degree of control that's stunning even today."
